Green Veined White

By Assyrian
This is a close up of the face and body of the Green Veined White Butterfly. The GVW is the most common butterfly in SW Scotland and often mistaken for the Large (Cabbage) White.

I think these are fascinating close up - you don't realise just how alien they look. Check out those grey eyes and the hairy body!

Thanks for the kind words on my previous uploads, please feel free to comment/criticise on this one also. Appreciate your time.

Thanks for your comment on my "Itsy Bitsy" spider
Chris. It was not very large so I figured, how much can he eat and zoomed in on him. I catch an occasional critter here and there but you have quite a collection of macros....Bob
